Secret Creator-owned Project Finally Revealed!
I have been teasing you with this for a while now. Those of you who follow my Facebook page may have heard rumblings of a super secret personal project in the works and a while ago I said that I would tell you more as soon as my Facebook page reached 666 likes (surely that was a bit of a hint)
Well, my Facebook page reached its goal over the weekend and as promised, here is the reveal for my new creator-owned project. In a few months I will be launching a Kickstarter Project for my first Creator-Owned Illustrated Book, The Cirque Du Mort.
The book will be a variety of short stories based around a ghostly circus of tragic performers. Each of the characters will have their own unique back story and reason for haunting the big top of the Cirque Du Mort. These stories will be accompanied by illustrations, pin ups and playbills.
I have already begun character design and written most of the script and, I have to say, I’m pretty happy with how it is looking so far. One of the things I really wanted to achieve with this piece was to create a whole host of unique and diverse characters from a range of backgrounds and just see where they take me with their own stories.
Some are tragic, others amusing, some just plain disturbing; but all brought under the stage lights together in a fun compilation of art and storytelling.
This book will be perfect for you if you were (like me) a bit of a Wednesday Addams growing up. Ideal for lovers of Living Dead Dolls, burlesque, steampunk, or Carnivale. Characters so far range from the conjoined Opera singers, Mallory and Felicity, who you have already met on Facebook; and Antoinette, the decapitated magician.
I will be updating you regularly from now on via my Facebook Group in regards to characters and works in progress. All of this will lead up to a Kickstarter Project which I hope all of you will be excited to take part in. I already have a whole bunch of prizes and perks in mind and I am really hyped to get started.
